Nice Brunch, terrible slow service!

Nice location and terrasse and food is very good! Unfortunately typically french service: slow and unfriendly. We saw 5 couples leaving without being served (and nobody cared about it). So: go here only if you have a lot time and patience! Brunch itself was really good and coffee as well (21 Euro... read more

All is in the title! Avoid, flee, run away! It looks attractive but this is a trap for tourists! The burgers are 2 ridiculously small pieces and horribly expensive.

Went there with friends last Sunday. We booked a table and asked for a nice spot where we would be comfortable with a 10 months kid. The bar is place on a nice square of the 5th arrondissement, directly on the famous rue Mouffetard. We had a very warm welcome, the high chair for the kid was ready, the table... More

I had lunch last week at Cafe Delmas last week with friends and it is a cozy place to spend a couple of hours chatting. I had the escargots, which dripping in butter and garlic were divine. My main course, however, was just very average. I had scallops which surrounded a serving of leaks and mushrooms. The scallops were well... More

I visited the bar with my friend in december. We discovered the bar rather by accident but what a pleasant surprise. It was a rainy afternoon and we looked for some shelter. The bar has a very nice interior especially the part where we sat (red pluche sofas, the different kind of wallpapers, a bit dark and the desklamps on... More

We had the Escargots de Bourgogne, coffee and lemon curd tart. The guys said that the escargots were excellent! Dark and cosy, service was prompt. The cafe has an excellent location in the square for people watching

We ran across Cafe Delmas wandering the streets of the Latin Quarter. I was honestly surprised to see other reviews when I wrote this one, as our experience was quite different from many others (thankfully). On a busy Saturday afternoon, it had typical cafe dining facing the small park "square." As it was in bright sun, we sat just inside... More

Charged us 14 euro for a glass of wine. This is a tourist trap restaurasnt so if you decide to frequest....make sure you check the prices and demand you only pay what's reflected on the menu. Buyer beware on this restraurant.

Lovely Latin Quarter square with great atmosphere and service. Expensive so go in Happy Hour if you want to drink alcohol!

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
